When a tooth is compromised by decay or damage, we may suggest a crown, bridge, or cap. These restorations, made in a lab from fine dental porcelain, will blend seamlessly with your teeth, return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and maintain your all-white smile.
Fillings (Composite & Amalgam)
We place only tooth-colored, composite resin fillings. You'll find Waterlase tooth-decay removal extremely comfortable when compared to traditional dental drilling. The Waterlase is a great adjunct in the removal of decay, it also disinfects the tooth and increase the bond of composite to the tooth, so this way composite fillings last longer and are less prone to further decay.
As a fixed prosthetic, dental implants replace one or more missing teeth - or secure dentures, partials, or bridgework in place. We work with a trusted specialist for implant post placement, then attaches lifelike crowns to the posts in our McKinney office.
Teeth may need extraction to make more space in your mouth or to replace a dead tooth with prosthetics. At Easy Dental, we use gentle measures and offer anesthesia to make tooth extractions as easy and comfortable as possible. We work with an oral surgeon if case a referral is needed.

Root Canals (some)
When a tooth's nerve incurs serious damage, a root canal may provide the only option to save the tooth from extraction. We have taken postgraduate courses in modern root canal therapy, and we offer anesthesia options to make the procedure comfortable and rewarding. We perform accurate root canals in one appointment with an APEX locator. This high-tech device uses a light that identifies the canal better, so we can clear the dead or damaged root and create a strong healthy tooth. A root canal can save your natural tooth structure and is a conservative alternative to extraction. In addition, we will use the Waterlase laser to disinfect your tooth's canal. All this is done more comfortably and quicker than ever before.
- Treatment of Gum Disease
As the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults, gum disease is no small matter. If our hygienist finds that you either have the disease or show a proclivity (predisposition) for it, we will recommend therapy that can be performed in our office. According to statistics, 80% of all adults over 35 years of age have some form of gum disease. Left untreated, it can lead to serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and even premature babies. Proper restorative care of teeth cannot be performed on diseased gums, so we must restore your gum health before beginning dental work. Our office offers several periodontal therapy services, so you can keep your gums healthy. These services include: (1) Charting and Diagnosis (2) Scaling and Root Planing – A conservative treatment, this procedure is also known as "deep cleaning." (3) Non-Surgical Arestin Therapy - This antibiotic, administered directly into the infected pockets between your teeth, may be applied following scaling and root planing. (4) Laser Therapy – We use the Waterlase laser to sanitize periodontal pockets, removing the harmful bacteria that cause periodontal disease. (5) Periodontal Surgery - If pockets do not heal after scaling and root planing, periodontal surgery may be needed to reduce the pocket depth and make teeth easier to keep clean.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you are missing many teeth, we may recommend dentures or partials. These prosthetics can be fixed or removable, and with modern dental materials, they look totally natural.
To replace missing teeth in a row, or a single missing tooth, natural-looking crown and bridgework made in a dental lab offers a strong, beautiful option. A bridge is a fixed prosthetic attached to crowned teeth, so it will not slip out of place.
